GAP adds to largest UK fleet of X ECO Lighting Towers

GAP Hire Solutions has continued to invest in X ECO Lighting Towers by purchasing another 60 units from Trime (UK) for the upcoming lighting season.

The X ECO Lighting Towers are innovative, versatile and compact machines, suitable for multiple uses such as construction sites, roadworks and events. The energy efficient LED lamps remove the need to replace bulbs, lamp glass, ballasts or capacitors - all of which often need replaced on-site, taking up valuable time. The LED floodlight is guaranteed for 50,000 hours, meaning sites will never find themselves being left in the dark on their jobs.

GAP’s Head of Procurement Ken Stewart commented: “We made a significant investment last year by acquiring almost 400 X ECO Lighting Towers and they`ve been well received by both depots and customers. Operators benefit from increased efficiency and significant cost savings compared to standard lighting towers. We`ll see some product enhancements this year with the introduction of an electronic engine governor and redesigned rear tail lights.”

The lights will be available for hire from GAP’s depots in advance of the clock change at the end of October.

Ken added: “GAP has over 2,000 lighting towers in the hire fleet which covers various models to suit different applications. Our depots are well ahead in preparing these for hire to ensure we meet the expected surge in demand.”

The purchase of the additional X ECO Lighting Towers is further evidence of GAP’s Green Action Plan in action. The Plan sets out the steps GAP is taking to reduce their carbon footprint and the support provided to customers to help them reduce theirs too.
